    Ford Delivers Best First-Half U.S. Sales in a Decade

    Ford Delivers Best First-Half U.S. Sales in a Decade;
    Strong Demand for F-Series, Ford Brand SUVs Drive Gains

    * Ford Motor Company’s first-half 2016 total U.S. sales increase 5 percent to 1,353,048 vehicles – best results in a decade; sales up 6 percent in June versus year ago with 240,109 vehicles sold
    * Ford sold more than half a million trucks in the first half – a 13 percent gain – further widening Ford’s truck lead versus the competition; F-Series up 29 percent in June; vans jump 14 percent
    * Ford brand June SUV sales up 7 percent, driving all-time record first-half SUV sales; Edge up 12 percent, Escape gains 6 percent and Explorer grows 3 percent in first half
    * Lincoln posts a 13 percent gain for the first half of the year, thanks to strong performance from its newest SUVs, Lincoln MKC and Lincoln MKX; Lincoln sales up 6 percent in June

    Full June 2016 Sales with Charts

    From Conference call:

    F- Series $42,850 per truck
    Best Ute performance in 16 years
    Escape up 20% compared to last year.

    Fleet numbers for June
    Commercial up 23%
    Govt up 46%
    Rental down 10%

    Compared to YTD 2015:

    Lincoln sales up 13%
    Lincoln SUVs up 25%

    LaNeve just said strong retail month for F 150 in particular and that any fleet increase was Government and Commercial.
    I missed it but apparently, Lincoln is strong in California, Jersey, New York and Florida plus one other state (?)
    those five states accounting for over 50% 0f Lincoln sales...

    Also YTD sales

    Ford USA....1,353,048....(1,293,621)...(4.6%)
    GM USA .....1,438,915...(1,505,545)...(-4.4%)
    Gap is .............85,868

    Apparently some people prefer slow coupes over perfect premium chassis cars...

    F- Series ....70,937...(55,171)...(+28.6%).....

    Even if we include all of GM's trucks including Mid sized ...LINK to Deliveries pdf

    It adds up to 79,271 where the F Series on its own is at 70,937......
    To me that a massive effort with a new Super Duty due to drop really soon...

    PI Ute............3,000
    Escape .......29,003
